Huskers bounce back against Jayhawks

One week after being upset by Missouri, Nebraska traveled to Lawrence to take on the Nolan Cromwell-less Kansas Jayhawks and returned with a 31-3 win thanks to another solid Black Shirt effort and a well-balanced offensive attack.

In front of 58,050 fans, the Black Shirts allowed Kansas across midfield once in each half. Kansas scored on a 42-yard field goal midway through the final frame.

Linebacker Clete Pillen led the defense with 12 tackles after playing much of the season with a bad ankle. The pass defense shined as Kansas completed only one of eight passes for 14 yards and had one interception.

Nebraska’s balanced offensive attack was led by Vince Ferragamo, who was 14 for 27 (199 yards). Nebraska balanced the rushing game between Dodie Donnell, 77 yards; Monte Anthony, 65 yards; Rich Berns, 57 yards; and Byron Stewart, 52 yards.
